Like a breath of icy air, this tense thriller is also a child’s-eye family drama like no other. Not since reading “Feeling for Snow” have I ever shivered like this.
It was scary, I sometimes sat shivering as though I was there in Alaska with the family and her mother. It is everything you want in a novel. It’s a riveting plot. The Quality of Silence will send your heart thumping. It is amazingly gripping.
The Author Rosamund Lupton has brought her most sophisticated brand of suspense to a setting that, could have attracted Jack Frost this remote frontier of northern Alaska. An elegant, chilling read from the writer who always continues to stretch the bounds of suspense.
From the Inside Flap:
The cold was shocking in its violence. She’d thought the color of cold was white, like snow, or blue perhaps, like on a cold tap, but cold like this was conceived in a place without daylight and was black, the absence of all light and color.
Somewhere out there was Matt:
She yelled out his name as loudly as she could. But as she began, her mouth let out a sound and then her lungs forced out is name like a scream but the sound was obliterated in the wind, but she could’nt tell if she’d made any sound at all.
From the Back Cover:
On 24 November Yasmin with her daughter Ruby set off on a trip across Northern Alaska. They were looking for Ruby’s father, who as gone missing in the arctic wilderness.
They were getting more isolated with each mile they covered, they had travelled deeper into an endless night. And Ruby, who had been deaf since birth, must be brave, where her sight cannot guide her.
She could not abandon her father. Now that winter has tightened its grip, and with somebody out there who wants to stop them.
